My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It was nice having the first three books in the series so I could continue on without having to wait. I do have to say that the first book was a bit slow for me in the beginning but I eventually got pulled right in.

Lexi has a terrible and scary past that she continues to have nightmares over. She is moving forward with her life and getting her new office set up before she goes on holiday. This is when she meets Lucca for the first time. There is something about him that ignites some different feelings in her. When she runs into him again while on holiday things take an interesting twist.

Overall this was a great read that leaves us with a heck of a cliff hanger leading into book 4. We get several hot and steamy moments. All of the characters added a great element to the story. I will warn there are some dark moments that could cause triggers for some. If you like dark reads this is a great series for you to read. I can’t wait to get my hands on book four.

Try RightTry Right by Jill Brashear
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was pulled in from the beginning with Claudia’s surfing lessons, or I should say attempt at surfing. She ended up having a great connection with her trainer. We then jump ahead a few years. Claudia finds herself back in Hawaii and she is determined to find her soulmate and get her career back on track.

Henry is a stuntman that Claudia meets on the set of her new job. When he agrees to help her find her soul mate, they start to grow closer. Will they be able to find him? What will happen when Henry’s secret comes out?

Overall I really enjoyed this book, the characters were great and I really enjoyed this story. If you’re looking for a great read that pulls you right in this is the one for you. This is the third book in the Aloha series that can be read as a stand alone, however it does help you get to know the characters a little better. Loved it!

Spiteful Punks: dolls and douchebags part one by Madeline Fay – Review by Michelle Austin

Spiteful Punks: dolls and douchebags part oneSpiteful Punks: dolls and douchebags part one by Madeline Fay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow….where to start with this review. I was pulled in right from the beginning. I will warn that there are scenes that may cause triggers for some. My heart went out to Tillie. The first scene we come into is heartbreaking, what Tillie is put through is so devastating, especially when some involved are people who should be protecting you. When she turns 18 she flees the MC to try and get away and start over. She is given an address to go to for help.

This is where her second nightmare starts. She gets some shocking news on top of running into a similar situation she had just left. But she is feeling things slightly different than she did with the MC. Will she be able to get away and finally find a safe place? Or will the boys pull her into their world?

Overall this was a great dark reverse harem read with so many twists and turns that your head will be spinning. I felt like we actually got two different stories in one. We also have several hot dominating men that will have your head spinning. You want to hate them but yet you can feel the attraction between them and there is a heck of a cliff hanger that will leave you wanting more now. This is my first read from this author and I loved her writing. It’s hard to find a really good dark book and this one had everything I love about them. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. This book is going on my must read 2021 list. 1-click and get started today.

Twisted Throttle (Satan's Devils MC Second Generation #3)Twisted Throttle by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was excited to finally get to read the next book in this series. Once I started I didn’t want to put it down.
Throttle is the club enforcer who doesn’t commit to any woman. When he sets his eyes on a new waitress at a club restaurant he realizes it’s a friend of his sisters.

Gwen crushed on Throttle growing up but he never looked at her in the way she wanted. Now as they get to know each other again sparks start to fly between them. I really liked Gwen, she is a very strong woman who had to take care of herself at a very young age.

There is a scary twist and a stalker comes into the story. Will Throttle be able to keep Gwen safe? And who is sending Throttle gifts?

Overall this was a read that pulled me right in and I couldn’t wait to see what was coming next. All of the characters added a great element to the story. We get mystery, hot steamy moments and so much more. If you’re looking for a great MC series to read I highly recommend this one. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
